									beActive launches brand New Sci-Fi Transmedia series Based on CERN's
Collider Experiments

What if the Large Hadron Collider experiments at CERN are putting the
world out of balance and mankind on the verge of extinction? A new sci-fi
series, iphone game and a comic book from transmedia pioneers beActive
simulates what could happen to the world if the experiments went wrong

Dublin, Ireland, June 02, 2012 -- Multi-award-winning transmedia
production company beActive has today announced the launch of Collider
(, a sci-fi story told across a range of
different platforms from the 4th of June. Collider tells the story of six
people transported to a post-apocalyptic 2018, where they have to fight
to discover how they got there, how to survive, and how to get back to
the present.

The story focuses on a young scientist Peter, who sabotages CERN
laboratories Hadron Collider when his credibility is wrongfully
destroyed. By doing so he accidentally transports himself via a wormhole
to a world ruined by natural disasters and at war with the Unknown. He
brings with him five people who have ‘jumped’ from different times and
different places, but who each hold vital clues needed to return back to
their present times. Peter keeps getting flashbacks and a sense of deja-
vu linked to the future. If he’s right then he has just 36 hours to
figure out a way to get to CERN, reverse the wormhole and prevent the
apocalypse because when the clock runs out so does Earth’s existence.

The Collider story will be told across several platforms, including comic
books, webisodes, a Web site and an app/game which will go on sale the
first week of June. The Comic Book will be distributed by iVerse Media in
North America through their Comic Plus comic book store, and also
available on Apple iBookstore and Amazon Kindle store. A feature film
will be shot in the Fall for a 2013 release and a full social media
experience is available on

beActive’s co-founder and CEO Nuno Bernardo said: “We are pleased to
offer sci-fi fans a brand new transmedia project. The elements that make
up this innovative and engaging storyline demonstrate beActive’s

complexity of the characters and the journey they take makes this a real
sci-fi spectacular, guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat”.

The eight part web series (released on Youtube and in North
America) will feature BAFTA award winning Scottish actor Iain Robertson
